Temperatures struggled to even reach 60° on this dreary day. Most of south central Kentucky topped out in the upper 50s this afternoon. In addition to these cooler temperatures, it has been running for much of the day. We only picked up a little over a two tenths of an inch of rain because, although they were persistent, the rain showers we saw today were rather light.
If you are disappointed in today’s rain totals, don’t worry; there is plenty more to come. It will be raining on and off, mostly on, for the next day and a half or so. We could see as much as two inches of rain when all is said and done, and some people may see even more than that if they get caught in a heavier shower or thunderstorm.

Looking further ahead, the rain will begin to clear by Wednesday afternoon, and the sunshine will return on Thursday. Temperatures will still be a bit cool with highs in the low 60s tomorrow but mid to possibly upper 60s for the rest of the week.
